General Overview

Parking tickets and charges, especially those issued on private land are hot topics for debate often fuelled by armchair lawyers who use various media such as the internet as their soapbox - As with many aspects of the internet this advice is very often ill founded and the people giving it are not legally qualified in any way and very often hide behind aliases and appear on many forums under multiple identities.

Charges issued by PTL are based on agreement to pay a set parking charge, in the majority of cases this is £60 if paid within 14-days - for parking charges not paid and referred for legal collection the charge increases to £150 or more to cover additional administrative expenses to enforce the debt plus legal costs (these are clearly defined at the time the contract is made).

When a ticket is issued on behalf of PTL we ensure that photographic or CCTV evidence is taken thereby showing the vehicle parked in clear view of a sign and therefore by the actions of parking you are deemed to have accepted all conditions on display.

PTL are one of the few companies that rigoursly pursue unpaid parking charges via the courts and all cases are dealt with by our retained legal experts, that specialise in such cases- thereby ensuring a consistent enforcement policy.

The statement that parking companies never win cases is a total myth and we produce a small sample of cases taken to court by PTL with the company and defendant present, many different avoidance defences were used but the court was satisfied that the parking charges were issued correctly, the signage clear and of a type that is bound to have been seen by a reasonable person and more importantly that our parking charges were fair.

Unfortunately many of the cases taken to court have been led into the belief that parking charges were not enforceable and by defending a case it would either be not pursued or be thrown out - this advice has come from various internet/advice forums and has resulted in an original charge of £60 costing the defendant at least 3-times that amount, a County Court Judgement being issued (which could make getting credit very difficult for upto 6years) and time/money spent by a defendant preparing a defence and attending court.

The Supreme Court ruled in a landmark case on 04/11/15 that the charges are fair and are for damages, click here to view the Judgement.
